We are excited to announce this year's TAS END-OF-YEAR FUNDRAISING campaign is Etz Chayim, the "Tree of Life”. Please take a moment to view Cantor Maria Dubinsky’s beautiful artwork and think about the numerous ways in which your lives have been enriched by Temple Avodat Shalom. I’d like to encourage you to rally in support of our synagogue amidst the challenging world we live in, so that our house of worship, learning, and community will continue to be there for us in our times of joy and need.

Put Away the Sword - An Elul Reflection
I grew up playing video games and I remember sliding the thick Nintendo cartridges into the 8-bit operating console that my parents bought my brother and me for Chanukah in 1987. I loved adventures most - including Super Mario Brothers, each of the Castlevania games, and The Legend of Zelda. Video games created a fantasy world that allowed me to feel powerful and heroic, even for just a fleeting moment so I could leap over pits, throw fireballs, and wield a morning star against Vampire Bats.
